Happy Saturday bloggies! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
I planned to get a lot done in the packing department today, but instead I decided to have a spur of the moment garage sale! I’ve never actually hosted (threw?) a garage sale before…usually I figure that I’m just too impatient to wait around all day and end up toting it all to Goodwill, but today, I got a wild hair and decided “what the heck!”
So I set up “shop” around 11am!
And then I sat there…in my garage…for what seemed like forever until I got my first customer. She looked around a bit and asked about a tv I was trying to sell. I, being quite the saleslady (thank you years of retail experience) was able to get her to buy not only the TV, but also the large TV stand and I even “threw in” a cheapo DVD player! 😉
But wait…there’s more! After she hand me the luscious green slips for the above, she spotted something else…my old crock pot!
I never actually had lunch or dinner today…and breakfast was not very photogenic (French toast with cinnamon/raisin Ezekiel bread covered in unsweetened coconut and 2 Applegate chicken sausages). Today was more of a snacky day…
I FINALLY broke down and made Evan’s peanut butter chocolate chip dessert hummus. Wow! I swear it tastes JUST like peanut butter cookie dough! Makes me not feel so bad about eating it straight up with a spoon…I mean… 😉
I’ve also been grazing on some mixed nuts throughout the day that were a gift to me for Christmas.
So, no exact meals by definition for the day, but still nutritious and delicious! Some days are just meant for snacking!
But wait…there’s more!
May I have a drum roll please?

I accidentally made protein ice cream! 😀
Tropical Coconut Protein Ice Cream
- 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut milk (carton, not can)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 scoop vanilla protein powder
- 2 cups frozen tropical fruit (my mix is pineapple, mango, peaches, and steebies)
This started out as a protein smoothie, but I got a little heavy handed with the frozen fruit…oops! When I removed the top of my food processor, I discovered a creamy soft serve ice cream consistency so I popped it in the freezer for a bit to thicken up a little more and then enjoyed a bowl topped with unsweetened coconut, graham crackers, and freeze-dried steebies!
Yeah, so remember that ice cream/fro-yo maker I bought last month? Not so sure if I’ll be needing it now!
What’s your favorite flavor?
I usually prefer vanilla, but I loved the tropical taste of this…a little sweet and a little tart and a LOT perfect!
